The Suh decision comes roughly three years after they signed the defensive tackle to an enormous six-year, $114 million contract. Although it is hard for any defensive player to live up to that type of money, Suh performed at a high level for the Dolphins each season he was in Miami.
He was solid in Miami with 4.5 sacks in 2017 after posting 5.0 in 2016 and 6.0 in 2015, but he was not the same disruptive force who tallied 36 in Detroit. The Dolphins are in the worst cap space situation according to Spotrac with negative $18.5 million. He has made just one Pro Bowl over the past three seasons and has not totaled more than six sacks in a season.
The move to release Suh is not about performance, but merely a business decision. Meanwhile, the Dolphins don't seem to want any sort of talent on their football team next season. He is 31 years old and hasn't missed a start since the 2011 season.

However, the Dolphins will also be forced to take on dead cap hits of $9.1 million and $13.1 million over the next two years.
Suh may have hinted the upcoming move in a Twitter video on Monday in which he said, "There will be some exciting things going on".
The Dolphins are going to be unrecognizable.
